saṇhakaraṇī : (f.) grinding stone; an instrument for smoothing.Source: Sutta: The Pali Text Society's Pali-English Dictionary
Saṇhakaraṇī refers to: “a wooden instrument for smoothing the ground, or a sort of trowel, ” Abhp 1007; J. IV, 250 (Loc. °iyaṃ piṃsito); IV, 4 (°ī viya tilāni piṃsamānā); V, 271; VI, 114 (asani viya viravanto °iyaṃ viya piṃsanto); cp. KhA 59; thus it seems to mean also a sort of instrument for oil-pressing, or a mortar. (Page 672)
Note: saṇhakaraṇī is a Pali compound consisting of the words saṇha and karaṇī.
